Answers to Training Questions

Am I eligible for a Trauma Recovery/HAP Basic EMDR Therapy Training?

Employment with a non-profit or public sector organization

  • EMDR Training is available to clinicians who work twenty four (24) or more hours per week for non-profit or public sector organizations in a clinical mental health capacity. Clinicians may work for more than one non-profit to reach the 24 hour per week requirement.

EMDR training is also available to full time students enrolled in a Master's or Doctorate level program in the mental health field (Social Work, Counseling, Marriage Family Therapy, Psychology, Psychiatry, Psychiatric Nursing ---- first year students not eligible). Students are not required to work 24 or more hours in a non profit or public sector agency. During registration, students are asked for the name and email address of their supervisor. The supervisor will receive an email request from Trauma Recovery to approve participation, prior to admission to the training.

  • Most clinicians attend a training event hosted by the agency where they are employed, but individual clinicians working in the non-profit or public sector can attend any event posted on the HAP training schedule that offers open seats.

I don’t work for a non-profit agency, where can I get Basic EMDR Therapy Training?

If you do not work for a non-profit or public sector agency, please view the EMDRIA Calendar of Training Events.

How can I know when a specific Trauma Recovery/HAP training is scheduled?

We schedule trainings when a non-profit agency submits an inquiry to us through our website www.emdrhap.org.

We do not contact the agencies for EMDR trainings, they contact us, so until an agency contacts us, we do not know when or where any upcoming trainings will be scheduled.

To find a training in a convenient training near you, check our training schedule regularly. The schedule is searchable by date and state.

If your agency is interested in hosting a training, please have them visit our website and complete a host application.

FYI: Some trainings are open to all, some are closed to just agency participants. If you find one and there are no seats available, contact registration@emdrhap.org to be added to a wait list.

What type of reading is required to prepare for the EMDR trainings?

For Weekend I EMDR Training:
Prior to your training, it is required that you read the first eight chapters of Francine Shapiro’s book: “Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing: Basic Principles, Protocols, and Procedures, 3rd Edition”. It is recommended that you read Francine Shapiro’s book “Getting Past Your Past”.

For Weekend II EMDR Training:
Prior to your EMDR training, it is required that you review chapters 2-8 and read chapters 9, 10 and 11 of Francine Shapiro’s book: “Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing: Basic Principles, Protocols, and Procedures, 3rd Edition”.

The books are available at any major online bookstore. All other Trauma Recovery/HAP resources are available through the Trauma Recovery/HAP Product Store.

What is the fee to do Basic EMDR Therapy training?

Basic EMDR Therapy training is offered at approximately half the price of many privately offered training options.  The price for each of the two required 3-day weekend training components is $445, for a total fee of $890.  The training fee does not include case consultation, but non-profit employees can often get free consultation from consultants within their own agency, or free or low cost consultation from independent consultants listed on the Trauma Recovery/HAP Consultant Directory.

There are no seats available for the training I want to take, how can I get on a wait list?

Some trainings are open to all, some are closed to just agency participants. If you find one and there are no seats available, contact registration@emdrhap.org to be added to a wait list.

I don’t have a Trainee ID Number/I forgot my Trainee ID Number

Starting January 2012, Trauma Recovery/HAP ID numbers have been included on the “Confirmation Email” you received when you registered for a training.

If you never got a Trainee ID Number, or if you have forgotten your Trainee ID Number click here to get your Trainee ID Number.

When is the Agency I attended for Part I going to host a Part II?

All participants who attended an agency’s Part I will receive an email when they have scheduled a Part II.

I didn’t get my Record of Completion

Records of Completion will be emailed to all participants of an EMDR Part II training after their attendance at the Part II training has been confirmed, payment has been received, and all 10 hours of consultation have been completed.

I didn’t get my CEUs

If a host agency applies for CEUs directly, participants will need to contact the agency representative for details about obtaining CEUs.

If a host agency requests CEUs be arranged through Trauma Recovery/HAP, each qualified participant will be assigned a unique CEU keycode, which will be emailed to participants after attendance and registration payment has been confirmed. This keycode will be used at www.ce-classes.com to enter the website and purchase the CEUs for the training/workshop the participant attended.

How do I find a consultant?

To complete Trauma Recovery/HAP’s Basic EMDR Therapy Training, each participant is required to complete 10 hours of consultation. Each participant/agency needs to arrange for the consultations on his/her own. All Consultants MUST BE registered on the Trauma Recovery/HAP Consultant Directory.

Trauma Recovery/HAP “recommends” that participants complete between 4 and 6 hours of consultations between the Weekend 1 and Weekend 2 training events.

How do I know how many consultation hours I have completed?

As you complete consultation hours, your consultant will enter them into the Trauma Recovery/HAP system. To see how many hours you have completed, and with whom, click here to see your completed consultation hours.

How do I get Certified in EMDR?

Please direct all questions about EMDRIA Certification in EMDR to EMDR International Association.

Are Trauma Recovery/HAP trainings EMDRIA Approved?

Trauma Recovery, EMDR Humanitarian Assistance Programs is an EMDRIA Approved Provider.  As such all EMDR related trainings are approved through EMDRIA.  EMDRIA credits available for each training are shown on the training’s registration page.

Cancellation Regarding Inclement Weather:
